Stretch and resize your application window and all your controls maintain the best position.
RubberViews maintains the place and relative size of every control when a Window or Container Control is resized.It also makes sure the content is resized to fit : font size, including styled text in TextAreas, as well as ListBoxes RowHeight, Pictures in ImageWells and Canvases. HTMLViewer as well. That extends to the Window or ContainerControl backdrop image, with the option to stretch it to fill the entire surface. All that is available with almost no coding : drop the class into your project, place an instance onto the window or container control, one line inOPen, one line in Resizing or Resized, and it flows right away.
RubberViews works with all three platforms, but has been optimized for each. For instance, it manages the whole 10 styles of Mac OS X buttons, and limits the growth of TextSize in controls that do not resize vertically, so they always look good. On Windows, of course, OLE Container (for Active X, OLE/OCX/COM/API GUI objects) is managed by RubberViews.
It is possible to set individual controls or group of controls to keep their aspect ratio, such as circle and square. Likewise, you can set individual controls not to have their content resized. Also, individual or group of controls can be ignored if you want to manage them yourself. Dynamic controls and custom controls (plugins, declare classes) are supported.
RubberCanvas is a custom version of the Canvas control that lets you draw in the Paint event at design resolution, and have it resized automatically without extra coding.
Additionally, a Curtain window animation has been added (see video), and a CenterWindow function.

The class in the trial version is fully functional and identical to the registered version, it simply displays a MsgBox the first time it is called. You will be able to put it into your own program and see immediately how you can have autoresize over a whole window in minutes.
